Meet Shoe Fly's Partnered Pedorthist: Dr. David Levine

I have been in practice in Frederick, MD for more than 25 years. Everyday I see how footwear is such an important part of the foot health solution. That’s why I partnered to start Shoe Fly – Frederick, with the goal of helping my patients – as well as the region – find quality footwear that is professionally fitted to the proper size and width.
